[Poetry] When We Find The Courage To Remember

A hazy dream, easily forgotten
A shadow of a memory, pushed aside
A misty thought, lost, never to be found
When we do not wish to remember.

A half-opened door with a secret
A recollection whispering through
The door is shut, the key thrown away
When we fear of what we can remember.

A tiny light in the midst of the dark
A warm laugh in the falling of the tears
A gentle voice among the shouts
When we find the courage to remember.

Day 24 of NaPoWriMo. Went off-prompt, chose instead to dust off another old poem. The muse and I need a nap.

  2. Amazing words, are very deep and thoughtful, kind of was like going down memory-lane, was very aspiring but also abstract and dreamy 🙂 Loved reading your work as always 🙂 ❤
